Welcome to Handshake!


At the Gwen M. Greene Career & Internship Center, we are always searching for innovative ways to provide the best experience to all of our students and employers. As a result of this mindset, we are excited to announce our transition to a new career management system beginning on Wednesday, July 1, 2015, powered by Handshake. The new system is a modern career services management platform that empowers you to efficiently connect with employers and search for jobs and internships to launch your career. 

Handshake is a modern and intuitive career platform that resembles many common social media websites.  Through social networking technology you will be able to quickly connect to classmates, career resources and events on the go and be connected to recruiters from around the country. 

Just by signing on to Handshake you will have already made some great steps towards finding your dream job or internship.  You can make yourself viewable to employers so that they can reach out to you directly and you can use the system to search for opportunities on your own.  You can also request an appointment with a UR Career Advisor, upload important documents like resumes, and check out upcoming events.  

Make sure to check back regularly over the next few months as our UR career community grows and the system gets into full swing!
